We have based this story around the inspirational music of Michael Jackson, whose dance moves have inspired so many of us here today.

    "Don't get caught in the web"

      The internet, some say, is a fountain of information
      Created for all, regardless of location
      Children, adults, the young and the old

      Too much for some, they become addicted
      Ignoring the dangers, no longer restricted
      A teen and a man
      No sign of threat
      Who's about to become a victim of the net?
